Casa Santos Lima Confidencial 2019
Red field blend! Rich ruby in colour with a wide range of complex aromas of ripe red fruits and vanilla. Boasting a balanced combination of oak and ripe red fruits, this wine is rich and full of juicy spiced fruits. Black currant and a hint of toastiness are fully integrated with some acidity to leave your mouth velvety smooth.
Colossal Reserva 2016
Made from a blend of Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Tinta Roria and Alicant Bouschet, this is vivid purple black in the glass with vibrant magenta edges. The bouquet is awash with dark plums, prunes, tar and polished oak and it is immediately seamless in the spicy, savoury, oaky, medium to full-bodied palate filled with succulent dark berry fruit and accents of baking spices and pepper. Terrifically tasty with lovely balance of fruit and savouriness and tannins more noticeable on the long dry finish.
Quinta das Amoras Branco 2018
Portugal flies under the radar when it comes to dry white wines but this wine over delivers with its fresh succulent flavours and complex notes from the five different grape varieties used in the blend. These grapes are all indigenous to Portugal; Arinto, Fernao Pires, Vital, Rabo de Ovelha and Moscatel. Together, they provide fresh acidity with beautiful aromatic notes from the Moscatel. It’s a characterful white with freshness, a tangy finish and a medium body.
